ARC Review - Committed: Drug of Desire by Sidney Bristol

Drug of Desire
by Sidney Bristol
Release Date: August 12, 2014
In this erotic tale of sensuality and suspense, Sidney Bristol proves that desire can be the most dangerous drug of all.
DEA Special Agent Damien Moana works hard and plays even harder. But while indulging in forbidden temptations at a private BDSM retreat, the unexpected happens: He falls under a stranger’s spell. This woman drives Damien to distraction, pushing him to the sweet boundary between pain and pleasure. When duty interrupts their heated encounter, his focus turns to catching a criminal . . . but his head is still with the seductress who ignites his deepest desires. Now Damien must choose between closing the case of his career and losing the woman of his dreams.
Poppy Mercer can’t forget the night she spent with her mystery lover. When chance brings them back together, she seizes the opportunity to again feel his masterful hands on her body. Poppy is a switch who delights in dominating a powerful man . . . and submitting to the ecstasy of his control. Outside the bedroom, however, she questions her place in Damien’s world. His obsession with hunting a ruthless drug lord puts Poppy in the line of fire. And though Damien might be able to save her from danger, salvaging what’s left of her trust is another matter.
Committed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
My Review:
I loved this emotional and sexy romance.  Dominant Damien Moana was instantly attracted to Switch Poppy Mercer when he first sets eyes on her at a private BDSM retreat.  The attraction is mutual and explosive between these two very strong characters. (Ice Water was needed!)  Before the night was over, Damien was called away and against his better judgment, left Poppy before giving her all that he promised.  Poppy was devastated and hurt that he would break his promise.  Damian is a DEA agent on the hunt of a ruthless and deadly drug lord so when he is called to capture him he must abandon Poppy and do his job.  He is intent on reclaiming her trust and will do whatever is necessary to develop a relationship with this fascinating woman.  Poppy must forgive him and learn to trust that Damian will keep his promises in the future.  I was caught up in this wonderful story from page one and read it until my ereader actually died!  The chemistry between these fascinating characters was unbelievable and the story line was well-written and engrossing.  I loved that Damian was not perfect but was willing to learn from his mistakes.  Poppy was sweet yet strong who had an unusual childhood.  This book had action, suspense and humor mixed in beautifully with the romantic kinkiness of the story that I did not went to put it down until the end (and even then I wanted more).  I really hope that there will be more stories in the future based around the characters of this book (it was filled with interesting and wonderful secondary people that definitely could use their own tales)!  Sidney Bristol is definitely going on to my favorite author list and I can't wait to start reading more of her wonderful stories! ~Booklover Sue
